Notes

Jay's Notes:
Digitally Remastered using a custom built, Dual-DAW, nicknamed Bertha, by jashley@deadacated.com. Completed on November 9, 2005.

I don't know where I got this show, and unfortunately, there was no text file with it. It does appear to be from the same source as the one on archive.org. The source on archive is listed as a cassette master. Spectral analysis cleary reveals two analog generations, making this, most likely, a cassette master>>cassette rather than a cassette master source.

There were many rough trasitions between songs, most apparently from the stopping and starting of a tape machine. Most of these transitions were edited to make them less harsh.

No Spanish Jam in the jam out of TOO, but a nice tease (one phrase) of Mind Left Body Jam at 04:35 to 04:45...

Great sound, too.

I reckon it's a solid show, but hardly mind-blowing. Kind of unusual 2nd set list.

16 years old, first dead show for me and friend Stiffy--after show we hung around in stands and got to ask Weir why he cut his hair and talk to lesh, too. Every boys dream. The hair_was_a disappointment, believe me.

Subject: This May Be From 2nd Gen Cassette
And even with a little tape hiss, this is an omnipresent presentation of the Bertha process.

I had to scrunch down the bass eq's on Jimmy Row because it was making my speakers boil!

How one could produce such an effort from a 2nd gen cass is something that makes me weak in the knees merely considering.

Every song is essentially solid even from the get-go casting itself immortally into the Archipelago and stomach-upped cayman. Ooooh, such strokes! Sure to lure you into a chasm of glee.

In Playing Jerry hits each and every mark going so far down that scaled line that he re-determines space and time. He gets so carried away by his frenzy that he loses himself in the whimsy and flubs lyrics like a vaudevillian on his final stage, but recovers the muse and finishes with a flair. And that carries over into Promised and Bertha.

On Greatest he is just flooring it! Just letting it all go!

The second set blasts on and just doesn't let up. He'sGone>Truckin>Drumz>Space>OtherOne>Spanish>Rider. Ah, just too far flung. Gotta figure he was sporting that Strat and squeezing it and making it spout with Roy Buchanan-like harmonics. It is really just all too much.

This another epic GD performance well-captured by friend and foe alike. Teamwork!

One of the first Saturday night shows without the One More Saturday Night?
